Jenny Holzer
Light Line


May 17 – September 29, 2024
Guggenheim Museum, New York




The exhibition will present a reimagination of Jenny Holzer’s landmark 1989 installation ‘Light Line’ at the Guggenheim. Climbing all six ramps of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda to the building’s apex, the site-specific installation will transform the building with a display of scrolling texts, featuring selections from her iconic series, such as “Truisms” and “Inflammatory Essays”.

‘Light Line’ will highlight the incisive use of the written word across time and media in Holzer’s practice. In addition to the LED sign, the exhibition will feature a selection of Holzer’s works from the 1970s to the present day, including paintings, works on paper, and stone pieces. From May 16–20, the artist’s light projection ‘For the Guggenheim’ will be displayed on the building’s façade at sundown.
